Visit UCI

Explore a breathtaking campus with a rule-breaking spirit in the heart of Southern California.

A place like no other

A visually breathtaking campus. Undeniable school spirit. Originality and opportunity. Involvement in activities that will shape the future globally.

Ask any UCI student about what they saw and felt during their first campus visit, and you’ll likely hear the same things. No matter how many pictures you see of UCI or how nice you know it's going to be, you won’t truly appreciate how beautiful our school is until you’re here with us.
